Medicines are used to help people live longer lives. That is why making medicine should never be taken for granted. In making medicines, one must undergo a long process.
Researches and long studies should be made to make efficient and safe medicines. Rushing things out and making short cuts in making this business can put people’s lives in danger. Unfortunately, there are still drugs that are being used and being distributed that can cause harm in the health of other people.
There are just particular warnings that companies give to inform the people that there are precautionary measures that they have to remember before taking the products that pharmaceutical companies have. Actos is one of the drugs that are included in this many drugs that have side effects. According to further studies, people who used the drug put their lives in danger. They had a higher risk of having bladder cancer and they are disappointed because of these. This is the reason why the drug was put in trial and was suspended. Medicines should not put their users’ lives in danger.
Users of the said drugs are now starting to consult their physicians. The doctors are also advised to not prescribe the said drug to their patients already. The company behind the actos drug did not included some warnings on their drugs on the possible side effects that the medicine that they have. This only shows that they themselves do not know of this. Deep study about the drug is missing.
The possibility of them having known of the side effect and not putting warning for people to know can even get them in a big problem. At this point, users who were positive of the bad effect of the drug are now seeking legal advice on what to do to the damage that they got.
